PASTOR JUSTIN LIND-AYRES has been serving at Augsburg University since August of 2013. Justin received his Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary in St. Paul and his Doctor of Ministry from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. Having served congregations in St. Paul, the Atlanta area, and Minneapolis, Justin now rejoices in his call to work alongside students, faculty, and staff in shaping Augsburg as a community that shares the transformative love of Christ through radical hospitality and service for the sake of the neighbor. Justin is the author of Is That Poop on My Arm? Parenting While Christian (Fortress Press, 2018), a book that chronicles his (mis)adventures raising children and passing on faith to them. Justin and his spouse Melanie live in St. Louis Park with their three busy kids where together they are active in their home congregation, Edina Community Lutheran Church. When not working with the wonderfully talented Campus Ministry team at Augsburg, Justin can be found spending time with his family, cooking, reading, drinking coffee, cheering on Auggie athletics, and fly fishing for steelhead and trout.
